a) Define CEO and describe the role.
b) Briefly describe the conduct or behaviour that is referred to as CEO activism and provide one “real world” example. (Make sure that you reference the source of your example).
) Discuss the relevant Australian statutory law on directors’ fiduciary duties.
d) Analyse your example of CEO activism and provide an opinion (conclusion) on whether this conduct meets or breaches the Australian statutory law on directors’ fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of their company.
e) Conclude your report with one PowerPoint slide summarizing your main message as to WHAT IS CEO ACTIVISM?
